Nicole Atkins Joins The Avett Brothers In NYC
Nicole Atkins joined The Avett Brothers for a song during their encore at Rumsey Playfield in New York City’s Central Park on Monday evening. The singer/songwriter, who helped the Avett Brothers get their first NYC gig back in the day, made her contribution on “Pretend Love.” Atkins has played with the band on a number of occasions, and she’s even recorded her own solo rendition of “Pretend Love.” In addition to this collaboration, fans of the Avett Brothers were treated to a 28 song show that included most of the band’s hits as well as a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “How Many More Times.”
The show was originally scheduled to happen on Tuesday, September 18, but had to be postponed because of bad weather. You can check out a gallery of photos from Monday night’s show here.
